The story involves a deadly snake, a speeding ute, a tradie, and a life-and-death knife fight. How much more Aussie could it possible get?
Police hear plenty of wild excuses when they pull a person over for speeding, but one Australian man’s real story might be a cut above the rest.
The 27-year-old man, identified by police only as “Jimmy,” says he used a knife and a seatbelt to fight off a deadly brown snake that had coiled around his leg while he was driving a truck in Queensland, Australia, on June 15. Police pulled him over after clocking the vehicle at 123 kilometres an hour, but they let him go after they heard his incredible story — and saw the dead snake that proved it.
Oh, how we miss watching each day’s local Aussie newscast. There seems to be something crazy like this every damn day.
